We warmly welcome international students!

forum3 is the University Chaplaincy for students of the University and the Universities of Applied Sciences in Bern.

The three dimensions of community, spirituality and development form the basis of our activities.

forum3 creates places to meet and celebrate, to experience silence, to exchange about life issues and for the creative expression of students.
forum3 supports students in their personal and spiritual development. Its events offer space for the discussion of religious, ethical and social topics.

Pastoral Care

As a university chaplain I am here for you

If you feel lonely, if problems or pressure are weighing on you, if questions about your future are bothering you, if you don’t know what to do; in short: if you need a professional, open ear, then don’t hesitate to contact me.

Independence and confidentiality are a matter of course for me. The offer is free of charge. You can call or email me. Pastoral care is possible in direct conversation or via email:

Below you find a selection of our events. We look forward to getting to know you!

„Quitting“ is an art! – We realised that when planning this semester’s programme. We had a lot of ideas for even more offerings. But we had to stop with the „more and more“. Otherwise there is no space for something alive to unfold in the planned encounters. Stopping interrupts our daily routines and creates space for listening: We no longer hear our own echo, but become callable, touchable by another voice. We can enter into resonance with what is essential for us. We think: Individually and socially, we need a „culture of stopping“ in order to become sustainable. This semester’s programme is dedicated to this concern. Learn more
